Sell a quality product and people notice – it's the foundation established by Bordie Mathias in 1957 when he purchased the franchise for Mercury motors. Bordie believed this was a good start because more people were interested in motorized paddle boats. It wasn't long after entering into the Mercury franchise that Bordie began researching the boat industry. By doing so at such an early point, Mr. Mathias had his pick of boat lines to choose from. He set the tone for Pine Crest Marine Center – sell a quality product and people know it.
One of the first in motor boat sales, one of the first to offer boat test-runs on the water and now Pine Crest is known as one of the oldest boat dealers in the Columbia Midlands area and one of the oldest in the state.
Pine Crest Marine Center has been here through good times and bad. What keeps our business strong is our focus on quality, craftsmanship and excellence in service. Pine Crest continues doing what it does best – offering one of the finest boats manufactured – the Xpress boats, the original all-welded boats. We continue to sale Mercury motors as well as Yamaha.
